Oh my gosh, so excited, We decided to add two nights on to our stay and finally a LM room opened up! We are spending 9 nights at Bonnet Creek and then switching for 2 nights!

Yes that's the norm for values and they do lack luxury but for us, we'd rather stay for 8,9,10 days at a value then at a mod or deluxe for a much shorter time.

Beware you will find surprise enjoyment in the value resort, and you may not miss the luxuries! :-)

Well, that was good of them. So glad you had a great trip.

I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

I can live without the hot tub and lounge. I'm only doing one night as I added a day at the beginning of my trip. It'll be my second value experience. While I prefer mod/deluxe, I did enjoy my value stay. All the levels have their own appeal. I figure to enjoy the cute for one night.

I'm sure we'll really like it. It looks darling. Can't wait to hear the Nemo underwater feature. The AoA food court looks really good. We're looking forward to our night there.

SOOOO Excited!

We are staying in the Cars Suites November 15-23rd! This is a surprise visit for my 5 1/2 yr old son! We are so excited! I am a little wary of the baggage thing with WDW. I have heard that it can take time for the bags to get to your room. We are not arriving into MCO until 10pm. What should I expect??? I was considering packing everything needed for one night in my carryon!
Even naked...I'd be happy to be at WDW!

After 10PM, Magical Express does not get your bags from baggage claim for you. Arriving that late, you will need to go to baggage claim and get your bags. Bring them with you to the Magical Express check-in. They will then be loaded onto the ME bus that will take you to your resort. They will be with you the whole time. Other than at baggage claim, no waiting for your bags.

Thanks for sharing. I can't wait to see the pictures as people are checking in to the LK section. I was hoping to have a little better view of the elephant graveyard play area. We'll be in the LM in October. Looking forward to getting to walk through this beautiful area.
